Nicola Zingaretti is working on the hypothesis of expanding his council in the Lazio Region to 5 stars, with the possible entry of at least one pentastellato councilor. There is talk of an assignment for Roberta Lombardi, today leader of the Movement in the Regional Council, and of a hypothetical second place in addition, perhaps in favor of a technician appreciated by the pentastellati. Among the boxes in junta, that of Culture could be free to make room for new grafts. After all, Lombardi has always had an attitude of dialogue with the majority, which over the years have led to a series of favorable votes from the M5s in the Lazio parliament.
The appointment of Alessandra Sartore as Undersecretary for the Economy in the Draghi government, holder of the Regional Budget for three years, has paved the way for a reshuffling of proxies in the Zingaretti junta. So the Pd secretary tries to give substance to the Giallorossi alliance that supported the second government of Giuseppe Conte also in local authorities. A possible opening, is reported by dem sources, which however must be built around some shared themes on which to focus the final part of the regional legislature.
Zingaretti’s move would also look to the next municipal elections, where the match for the Capitol is the one that presents the greatest difficulties for an agreement between the Democratic Party and 5 stars. Virginia Raggi does not intend to take a step back on her re-nomination as the dem reiterated that they will not support her run. And then the agreement in the Region, with the entry of a 5-star exponent who has always been in opposition to the mayor, could become a first step, perhaps with a view to grilling support for the Pd candidate in the ballot for the Capitol.
Lombardi herself intervenes on the issue, commenting: “We work with the majority on the issues since the beginning of the council and in recent months we have voted together on the programmatic lines of the next seven-year 21/27 and the Lazio Recovery Fund. There is therefore a joint commitment on these issues for the future of Lazio. Let’s continue on this path, what counts is to plan the last phase of council together with that united spirit and sharing that has characterized (and continues to characterize) the experience of central government ”.
According to Alessia Morani in the Pd “we need a congress, also because before talking about alliances with the M5s we have to define our identity” and the experiments done so far with the 5 Stars “have not had great success, from Umbria to Liguria” he says in an interview with ‘La Stampa’. The dem deputy, Patrizia Prestipino, criticizes: “The entry into the Lazio regional council of the M5s if done in this way creates a lot of confusion. First we need a discussion in the Democratic Party and the seats are those of the party “. “The Pd-M5s alliance in the Region will have repercussions both at the national level and at the next regional level but, first of all, on Rome, which will go to the vote soon – he explains -. Is it a pattern that will also be reproduced in the capital? If this is to be the case, then let’s extend the alliance to include liberals, reformists, and propose an Ursula majority. And who will the candidate be, the Raggi? Before making any move, it is necessary to talk about it in the party, at the regional and national level: the headquarters are the management or the assembly ”.
